It does not matter when they started working on the requirements for Eagle.b) BSA is going to offer a new badge called Sustainability in the summer of 2013. Scouts have to earn Sustainability OR Environmental science. Most probably already have the latter badge.Is this an approved BSA change effective immediately? If so, is there a plan or guideline to encourage the Eagles to finish before 12-31-2013 or will there be special classes,trips or sessions to now earn the cooking Merit badge?The concern is the scouts are busy trying to finish scouting, as well as in some cases high school and get accepted to an university, all before they become 18, adding another merit badge to the mix can be challenging to plan for and around.
